    Who's gonna be the first to break the 8 Handle? We should get a pool going here.

    I think after my pre-orders this year come through I have to get out of the game as well. Unless I can sell a pair, no new pairs. My COLAs at work surely aren't keeping up with it...

    The LWBs are worth waiting for I think.

    I want to like these, and I appreciate the fact that they aren't on the barrie, but I think I prefer a traditional shortwing blucher or longwing.

    I'd go LWB too. I have the RL Marlow which I think are much better short wing variations. And ALWAYS goes on sale!

    I've got 7 Pairs of Aldens, all shell.

    LHS - Black, 8, Cigar
    Tassel - 8, Cigar
    PCT - Black 8

    Today I wore my Espresso Shell Rancourt Blake Boots

    Bean Boots when its real ugly or walking the dogs off-road

    got black and brown Gucci Horse-bit loafers

    Brown Suede Tod's driving mocs

    another pair of brown calf hand-sewn penny loafers (Peal & Co from BB)

    will probably buy a pair of Rancourt CXL Boat-like shoes (custom hybrid design I have been cooking up)

    New balances when I dress it down.


    ...already an excessive collection by any other standard than ours.

    Gents, if I wear 8.5D in Barrie last, should I go for the same size in Tremont?

    thanks
